Romania Earthquake Sparks Panic in Northern Bulgaria
The 5.3 earthquake Saturday evening reportedly caused panic in many northern Bulgarian cities, sending scores of people on the streets.
The earthquake was felt strongly in northern Bulgaria at 20:18 pm. The epicenter is in the Vrancea area, where a major fault line caused dozens of quakes in recent years.
The quake lasted about 30 seconds. Mobile phone services have been interrupted for a short time.
The earthquake was felt in Dobritch, Pleven, Belene, Svishtov, Kozloduy, Nikopol, Silistra, Veliko Tarnovo, among others.
In the Black Sea city of Varna the shock was felt only slightly and only on higher floors.

Ca tu-i fi vre-un destept , ce sa-ti spun !
Pai daca ai fost in epicentru evident ca nu ai simtit mare lucru ( iar de auzit probabil ca te auzi oricum numai pe tine ) - cutremurul s-a produs la o adancime de 120km. La Bucuresti s-a simtit destul de tare.
Vezi-ti de ale tale si nu-i mai insulta gratuit pe altii.
Well when 32 years ago the earthquake hit Bulgaria communications were probably not as good as today, but the information flow from the regions was similar to that one today- No danger, no significant damges reported, etc. People, its not a joke: Kozluduy, where the old nuclear plant is functioning and a new one will be built is also in the eminent earthquake zone.
By denying any danger for the People of Bulgaria the clowns runing the country are neglecting reality. They are obviously from outer space!
